The Gang

The Gang may have been having a good time camping in the Rockies, but it wasn't all fun and games.  Take a close look at the second photo, and see that the third man in line is holding a theodolite.  These aren't three friends having a back to nature trip, they're surveyors.  But what were they surveying?  The boundary of a park?  How about the boundary of someone's land?  A new road into the Rockies?  A logging operation or a gold mine?  Hopefully these weren't the last people to enjoy this spot before it got fenced off, dug up, or cut down.
